The A capella choir will perform their spring Garden Show in the high school courtyard on April 30 at 6:30 p.m.. 

“I’m very excited,” senior A capella member Tessa Blasko said. “While I do love the jazz show, I’m excited to mix in other things too.”

Community members are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets to the event. The show is free to attend.

“It’s a great place to have a concert because it’s at the school,” choir director Kathy Koziateck said. “It feels intimate, and it’s a wonderful outdoor venue.”

This is the first year the choir is holding the garden show. Previously, the A capella choir and jazz band would perform together in the Java Jazz event. The garden show will not be limited to Jazz and will have a variety of performances.

“I’m excited about it because it’s something new,” A capella member and senior Audrey Hightower said. “I think it’s something a lot of students will want to go to because of how different it is and how they’ll know most of the songs.”

The choir has prepared songs such as “Many the Miles by Sara Bareilles,” “Steppin’ out with my Baby by Tony Bennett,” “Java Jive by Ben Oakland and Milton Drake” and “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go by Wham!.”

“One of my favorites is Java Jive,” Blasko said. “Java is just really smooth, and it always sounds really good every time we sing it.”

Along with the group performances, each senior A capella member has the opportunity to sing a solo.

“Our seniors have had such a tough two years,” Koziateck said. “Their junior year was cut short, and then senior year started off in such a strange way. This gives them an opportunity to really shine.”
